Chelmsford is an interesting town. We have many extremely active residents, one very vocal detractor, and a community that, overall, seems to trust our local government and town volunteers to keep things moving forward. On Tuesday, April 2, the voters will be asked to fill two open seats on the Board of Selectmen. Out of five candidates seeking these seats, I will be filling in the box next to incumbent Matt Hanson and long-time town volunteer Patrick Maloney.
Matt has done an excellent job working with the Board to improve our financial stability during challenging economic times while simultaneously pushing forward impressive improvements to town infrastructure and energy efficiency. He is a thoughtful man who cares about his neighbors and who thoroughly enjoys serving the community.
Pat has been a strong partner to the Board of Selectmen and many town departments by overseeing the renovations of our schools, two town halls and the upcoming fire department and DPW headquarters - all while aggressively pursuing rebates and grant money to lower the cost. This directly impacts each and every one of us in our wallets.
With talk about taxes and accountability leading up to this election, I can think of no better representatives to be elected than Matt Hanson (#3 on the Ballot) and Patrick Maloney (#4 on the Ballot) - both of whom have proven success and who see Chelmsford as the tremendous community we all enjoy.
